Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: After hunting Africa numerous times since 1979, I was talked into going to Namibia by Bud Wulforst and Joe Coleman, my hunting companions for years. As having not been to Namibia before I decided to go along. There is probably no African antelope that I have not taken before, thought that the trip would more or less be a sightseeing adventure for me. Low and behold, there is so much quality game available that one cannot help but wanting to shoot some.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: We arrive on the 27th of July and left on the 7th of August, and we hunted for 10 full days not being charged for the travel days. The guest houses were maginificient and the meals were not only delicious, but the table settings were elegant. The wines, beers, and other drinks were of the highest quality. The Metzgers, Diethelm & Katja only strived to make our stay and hunting memorable. After the hunt we went on to Hartmann Valley and the sand dunes, thereafter to Etosha National Park. After about 28 African trips This will go down as one of my most enjoyable. Makadi is just like the old time Eastern African outfitters. Just wonderful.
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? Once you arrive at Makadi there is nothing for you to do except enjoy the hunt. Everything else will be thoughtfully catered to your needs or desires.
